Employment services for businesses

With legislation becoming increasingly complex, Employment Tribunals able to award compensation of £74,200 for employees found to have been unfairly dismissed and unlimited compensation for those employees found to have been discriminated against, professional advice on employment related issues is an important consideration for all businesses whatever their size.

Many firms claim to be responsive and to offer pro-active advice.  We mean it.  We take the time to get to know your business, your policies and procedures, work place culture and most importantly – your business objectives.  The advice and services we provide are timely and practical.  We focus on achieving and helping you implement your desired out comes and on meeting your strategic objectives. 

We have a specialist employment department providing a comprehensive range of services, including:-

  • employment agreements/contracts for your employees;
  • policies and procedures;
  • advising on recruitment, employee obligations and entitlements, dismissal and redundancy;
  • restrictive covenants and protecting your business;
  • representing you in Courts and Tribunals if employee-related disputes become litigious.

  • persistently absent/on long term sick leave;
